The IT Law Wiki


Misrepresentation is a concept in contract law. It refers to a false statement of fact made by one party to another party, which has the effect of inducing that party into the contract. For example, under certain circumstances, false statements or promises made by a seller of goods regarding the quality or nature of the product that the seller has may constitute misrepresentation.


A finding of misrepresentation allows for a remedy of rescission and sometimes damages depending on the type of misrepresentation.
